Welcome to the group Semiconductor Components

The group of Semiconductor Components studies the heart of electronics: the semiconductor device. Think of transistors, diodes, solar cells, and sensors. Our investigations range from materials science via microfabrication to device characterization, modeling, and long-term reliability. Focal points of our research are:
